Log: Observed with Tele Vue Ethos 13mm, 115x. It’s a medium sized, quite bright galaxy with a highly condensed, nearly starlike core. It’s pretty much round, with possibly a slight flattening on the top. With direct vision, it appears as a fuzzy star. When you use averted vision the haze grows and extends nearly to the faint star at about 5 o’clock in the eyepiece field of view.
